How do they make babies?
When TubaDad was traveling last week, Ro hit me up with our first “How do they make babies” question. Totally unprepared to answer, I neatly deflected (or so I thought) with “Your father has a GREAT answer to that question – ask him when he gets home.” I thought she’d forget all about it, but no such luck. Apparently she cornered TubaDad after he arrived home and wanted her answer. He gave a nice high-level what-is-a-five-year-old-really-asking answer and, again, I thought we were home free. Yeah... not so much... At the bookstore yesterday, Ro informed me that “Daddy only gave me a summary, I want the details!” Heh. Has anyone run into this with your kiddos yet? Please share your stellar answers (good or bad, because you know I need a laugh!)
All kindergarten parents recently had to fill out heart-shaped cards with love notes to their children and “special” decorations (such as glitter, stickers, or photos, according to the instructions). Sounds great in theory, but I forgot all about the notes until 10 minutes before school on the morning they were due. Gah!!! Ransacked the office, found the heart papers, scribbled oh-so-meaningful-but-really-brief notes, and ran a pink crayon quickly over the background. I handed them to the girls and we started running for the car. In mid-step Ro looked at hers and screeched “Maaaaaamaaaaaa, it’s not even pretty!!” but Ree checked hers and said matter-of-factly “Mama, it’s good enough.” That’s my girl!
Ro and Ree are funny about clothes. They can spot something new in their closet within seconds of stepping inside. And it’s a reeeeeeally big closet. (Someday I’ll post a pic of it, but I’m afraid the blog commenter who was appalled by how many shoes the girls have might just fall over dead from a heart attack.) Anyhow, I got some darling white skirts at the Children’s Place, and snuck them upstairs Monday night, and sure enough Ro and Ree skipped downstairs on Tuesday morning proudly sporting the lace swishies and proclaiming that these were their new fave skirts (they’re kind of in love with anything white right now). (I used a funky preset on these two pics called “golden girl” to give them a sort of retro, sunny look):
Love all the suggestions for a new header, thank you!! I’m going to attempt a fashion friday one first, as so many folks suggested. So stay tuned. The wild-but-totally-Ro-and-Ree outfits that came giggling down the stairs today were so, so perfect for this that I grabbed the camera and snapped away. Here’s a small sneak preview with one of the photos that didn’t make the cut. Oh, and we all love the Choco Taco idea that was submitted (plus they are delish), so I’m thinking that concept will have to be made into a header next!
Thank you also for all the comments and info about who can see the blog and what you’re using to view it. (There were some browsers in there that I’d never even heard of, by the way -- must try out Google Chrome, it sounds intriguing.) I was hoping there would be a huge, obvious hole in reporting, so I could easily pinpoint a problem, but that wasn’t the case. So I’ll be using all the info you gave and doing more troubleshooting.
